A lot of diplomatic communication is visual, and yet the topic remains almost unstudied. Given that diplomacy involves embodied performances, the visual is an inevitable and constitutive aspect of diplomacy. The purpose of this workshop is to explore these links. We pay particular attention to how visual diplomacy is intertwined with popular culture, from social media to representations in photography, film and television.
